Classed as an "easy" walk from the hotels literature but with the large number of quite high steps that start the walk off, I'd say it was more "moderate" than "easy". Not particularly well marked but not difficult to work out which way to go....More

We walked up Monte Brione, spending aprox 2 hours before wandering back downwards. The views were spectacular and the old forts interesting

A hot walk on a summer's day! Lots of wooden steps to climb.Lovely views on the way up and at the top. Make sure you pay a visit to the fort and come back down on the roadway. It is a much easier descent.

Nice short walk at the small pancake mountain between Riva and Torbole. At the top is an old fort, which is nice

A fascinating short climb revealing World War One defence positions, barracks and fortifications. Some good views over the lake, too. There is a marked path (that probably gets slippy and muddy in the rain but is pleasant in good weather. Only takes half a day...More

Unique views overlooking Torbole & Riva Del Garda. The mountains surrounding Lake Garda look fabulous! Olive groves looked nice along the walk. Certainly worth the climb for breathtaking views.
